Sophie is jealous of the attention her brother gets from their parents while he’s sick in this twentieth book of The Adventures of Sophie Mouse!
When Sophie’s brother, Winston, gets sick, Sophie feels bad for him…at first. But when she sees how much attention he’s getting from their parents, she starts to feel something else: jealousy. Sophie normally loves school, but now she wishes she could stay home and play all day like Winston. But when Sophie begins to get the sniffles herself, she realizes she was much better off without them.
With easy-to-read language and illustrations on almost every page, the Sophie Mouse chapter books are perfect for beginning readers!

Poppy Green can talk to animals! Unfortunately, they never talk back to her. So she started writing in order to imagine what they might say and do when humans aren’t watching. Poppy lives on the edge of the woods in Connecticut, where her backyard is often a playground for all kinds of wildlife: birds, rabbits, squirrels, voles, skunks, deer, and the occasional wild turkey.
